San Bruzio is one of the most refined Romanic monuments of Maremma. The monks of the Order of Saint Benedict dedicated the church to San Tiburzio, and its construction was completed towards the end of the XII century.

The evocative ruins of this beautiful church are located in the countryside 2 km away from Magliano in Toscana in southern Tuscany. The remains of the monastic complex include the presbytery surmounted by an octagonal ciborium that once supported the roof, parts of the transept and parts of the apse.

A few decorations have also survived, with some of the column capitals, and a small number of bas-reliefs and sculptures, some of the first examples ever of Gothic style.
